I'm am wondering if I took a file and sharpened my trolling motor prop blades, if it would cut thru slop better? Come on I bet someone in here tried it. Did it work?

Does work a little. I have a "the Goat" on my trollingmotor, which made a huge difference. I also added the Kipawa prop. Together my Fortrex will chew a path threw hydrilla.

I've been sharpening and balancing my props the last few years. It makes for a really quiet motor.

Tractor supply has them for less than $5.

They work good on lawn mower blades as well! Haha

Great idea Steez, do you just glue weights on it if needed?

No, just file a little more off the EAR that is lower on the balance device. I like the Ninja prop; very sharp and it will cut.
